Good morning: The first time I saw the ocean was on a family vacation to San Diego. As soon as the water came into view, I pulled the minivan into a parking spot and we all jumped out and headed for the beach. It was an awesome sight! The vast size of the ocean, the…

Good Morning, The most recent Powerball winner took home over 480 million in cash. When I saw the announcement I thought to myself, “She doesn’t deserve that! She’s just taking other peoples’ money. Plus, it’s a sin to gamble.” However, my condemnation of the lady wasn’t solely based on righteous anger that she stole from…

Good morning, This Tuesday all of the local high schools will be back in session. Sports teams will soon be playing under the lights, teachers will be correcting the mounds of homework they assign, and the cool kids will soon be separating themselves from those they deem not cool. Whether it’s for class, study hall,…

Good morning, What’s your exercise routine: a daily walk around the neighborhood, a five-mile bike ride, lifting weights at the gym? We know that regular exercise is important for our muscles. If we don’t use them, they will inevitably become weaker. To stay strong or grow in strength they need to push or pull against…

Good Morning, Finally! At the age of twenty, I was no longer dependent. I was independent! I had my own car, paid my own rent, and unfortunately, even had my own health insurance. I had my own job and made all my own meals. Life was great and then it got better. I got married…

Good morning: Every time I weave around and through the orange traffic cones on Highway 100 the same thought runs through my mind: “What are they doing?” Or in translation: “They have no idea what they’re doing. I know better.” Of course, that’s unfair. I haven’t kept up with the DOT’s master plan. I have…

Good morning: It’s a beautiful morning! The air is fresh and cool under a sunny sky. Lawns are a lush green and flowers are blooming everywhere. A perfect day? On the surface it might appear that way, yet we know better. Our world has deep underlying problems. Sunny skies can quickly morph into tornado-producing storms….

Good morning: There are all kinds of ways to make enemies: be rude, make a mean comment, don’t keep your word, use other people for your own advantage. As children of God we don’t want to do any of those things. The Lord points us in an entirely different direction: “Love your neighbor as yourself….If…

Good morning: Google “population clock” and you’ll be directed to a site which displays the population of various countries, as well as the population of the entire world in real time. Births and deaths are represented by constantly changing numbers. A few days ago when I checked, there were 266 births and 108 deaths worldwide…

Real or Fake?

Good morning: “Amazon buys whole world!” announced a website. Of course it was an obvious parody of “fake news,” which made many smile. However, fake news is not always that harmless and easy to spot, especially in spiritual matters. Millions are taken in by statements such as: “People are basically good….Good people go to heaven….God…
